Reinhold Cohn & Partners

“Mathys & Squire is the strongest partner we have in Europe. Their work is of the highest quality, is very thorough and sets a benchmark for international collaboration on sophisticated patent issues. They layout options in terms of success rates which is invaluable in helping me make commercial decisions on how to proceed.”


“Mathys & Squire are innovative about what they do. They are not just ticking boxes; they are always trying to come up with better ways of doing things, and are always open to suggestions from our side. We work very closely. Most importantly, with Mathys & Squire, I know I will be working with a stable team who know me and my business, and can deliver the technical and commercial advice I need to protect our IP.”


“Mathys & Squire is always concerned with finding the right commercial answer for clients and will not hesitate to veto ill-thought-through courses of action in favour of a more nuanced approach.” Its acquisition of Coller IP – itself a leading expert in IP strategy and valuation – marked a serious step forward on the strategic front and allowed the firm to broaden its offering yet further.”
